Re: Magpro powder
If I were elk hunting I would have no doubts in them. I was shooting a 300RUM before my 280 AI, I set up a 3/8's steel target at 400 yards, it was not the AR500 steel, regular steel, man those 208gr A-Max bullets just drilled right through the plate. I was very impressed with them.
I had heard that the RE powders were not very stable in colder weather. I usually try to stay with hogdon's extreme powder line, but have not see the velocities from them, thou I did see a couple posts with people using H1000 and retumbo. Being disabled makes it kinda hard getting a deer out, not sure I would like to try get an elk out
